Dog Boarding

At Just Happy Dogs, located just across from Depew Park in Peekskill, NY, your furry friend is truly part of the family. Your furry friend’s day is filled with fun activities—playing with packmates, enrichment activities and a brief walk (weather permitting) or romp in the fenced-in backyard. Now, it’s time to relax with their pet guardian hosts, have a peanut butter snack and settle in for TV watching with our pack.

While our pack goes to bed for the night, rest assured, our guests will not be alone. One of the owners will be right there with them, making sure they are comfy and secure.

Of course, bedtime soon approaches and it’s time for our guests to say good night to our pack.

Until the morning, then, when another fun day awaits, unless, of course, it’s time to pack up and await your guardian’s arrival for the return home.

You’ll be missed, my furry friend. Until the next time…

Our Dog Boarding Rates

We know that the only reason you are entrusting Fido to our care is because you can’t include them in the things you need to do and the places you need to be. While we are sad you can’t take him or her along, we are honored to be his temporary guardian. That’s why we don’t box you in to a specific drop-off or pick-up time. Rather, our rates are based on a rolling 24-hour period. For example, drop off at 10 AM, pick up by 10 AM on the departure date. And, of course, if your plans change, we are happy to accommodate that as well.

Our dog boarding rates fall into three categories:

  • The Overnighter:
    • Nights 1-15: $77/night

What to Bring

Sure, we have plenty of toys and fun things to do to keep your pooch occupied and comfortable in his home away from home but if your furry friend has a special toy or other item that will make him or her feel more at home, we encourage you to bring them with you when you drop off your pooch. No need to lug a heavy bed or crate or bring a food bowl. But, don’t forget, we do not crate your furry friend so we cannot be responsible for any damage to items left with him or her. Dogs will be dogs.

You’ll also need to bring enough food for their stay. For dry food, please portion your pet’s food in individual baggies per meal. For canned or any refrigerated food, please make sure your pet’s name is on the container. If your dog requires any medications, please make sure you bring that with you and that your pet’s name is clearly marked on the container.

If your dog has any allergies or special needs, please make sure you bring that to our attention during the Meet n’ Greet and note it on the application.203

We’re sure that as a pet guardian, you want to make sure your four-legged family member is in good hands. And, of course, as pet guardians ourselves, we want to make sure that your pooch is a good fit for our household so all can enjoy an harmonious stay.

That’s why we require a Meet n’ Greet for all new clients so we can all agree that the fit is doggone perfect.

Meet n’ Greets take about a half hour and are held off-site so as not to disturb our pack and our dog guests.

For our new guests, Meet n’ Greets are scheduled after you make a boarding request. Once it’s out of the way, you’ll have the ability to schedule a stay if something comes up last minute. It’s a great way for all us to begin to get to know each other

Please click the link below to be taken to our scheduling partner, Doggie Dashboard, to book boarding. You’ll need to have your pet’s vaccination records and vet-signed rabies certificate to complete the application.
